[PATCH 1/1] remoteproc: fix elf_loader da_to_va translation and writing beyond segment

From: Henri Roosen
Date: Wed May 03 2017 - 08:13:23 EST

Consider a system with 2 memory regions:
0x1fff8000 - 0x1fffffff: iram
0x21000000 - 0x21007fff: dram

The .elf file for this system contains the following Program Headers:
Program Headers:
Type Offset VirtAddr PhysAddr FileSiz MemSiz Flg Align
LOAD 0x000094 0x1fff8000 0x1fff8000 0x00240 0x00240 R 0x4
LOAD 0x0002e0 0x1fff8240 0x1fff8240 0x03d1c 0x03d1c RWE 0x10
LOAD 0x003ffc 0x21000000 0x1fffbf5c 0x001cc 0x048a0 RW 0x4

Section to Segment mapping:
Segment Sections...
00 .interrupts
01 .text .ARM .init_array .fini_array
02 .data .bss .heap .stack

The problem is with the 3rd segment: it has 0x1cc bytes of ROM .data
which need to be placed at PhysAddr 0x1fffbf5c. Using MemSiz as len
parameter for rproc_da_to_va is incorrect (goes beyond 0x1fffffff). The
correct len parameter to be used here is FileSiz.

The actual memcpy of the segment was already correctly using the FileSiz
for length, however the unnecessary "Zero out remaining memory" would
write beyond the 0x1fffffff end of the memory region! This patch removes
the harmful code.
